Dalur Lopapeysa

This was the first lopapeysa I've ever knit. We bought the lopi directly from the Álafoss factory while we were in Iceland. I ended up having to give this one away (to my sister; Scoofy) because I made it too small for myself.

While in Iceland, Shibe and I stopped by the Álafoss factory where they sell handknit lopapeysa and lopi to make your own! The lady working at the time helped us to pick out our own yarn, and gathered knitting needles for me as well as an Icelandic Lopapeysa pattern book. Little did I know just how much I would love knitting, especially with lopi!

She's trying to help, I swear!

At this point in time, I still was having trouble with the 1x1 ribbing. I would later find out that with a different cast on method, I would make 1x1 ribbing like a pro! Still, I love this design and I still wear it to this day.

Thank you!! They're both my top favorite lopi patterns by far!
I also thought the same thing about #2. I'm always fighting her wanting to climb into my project basket laughing She's either always trying to attack my yarn or trying to sleep on it
